Free EQ FICO 8 at Langley

People looking for free FICO 8 scores often say that they don't know where to get a free EQ FICO 8.

 

I just realized they provide that at Langley FCU, which is a very good credit union in my opinion.

Re: Free EQ FICO 8 at Langley

You get this just with a savings account?  And it is a FICO 8 Classic?

 

Thanks for the heads up.  I agree that's a nice to have.  Most people have to rely on a Citi card, and even then that is a FICO 8 BE score rather than a classic.

Yes. I just confirmed it with customer service. All members get access to their FICO score.

Yes it's a FICO 8 Classic. That's why I mention it. I checked and double checked and it says "Your FICO® Score 8 based on Equifax Data is the same score that Langley FCU pulled on 2/03/18 and uses to manage your account."

Right.

I have, and it says score not available yet and gives new account as a possible reason...which is strange considering they did a pull to open the account. Some things could only make sense to bankers or credit unions. They told me on the phone their pull was 826 at the time, but why they can't have it at the accounts own fico score link is beyond anything I can understand. Maybe it will show as of the first printed statement.

Right now...just this!!! By the way, I also asked for a LOC to cover overdrafts for 5k and was declined due to too much existing credit lines...with all scores over 800!!!

Re: Free EQ FICO 8 at Langley

This is a hard pull (EQ?) to open a checking or savings?

Sorry


Not your fault....by the way what the CSR told me the exact reason for the credit denial was that I had too low of credit balances in relation to very high credit limits. He said they look at the highest ever balance reported on revolving lines compared to my credit limits. So even though AZEO is great for high scores, it can and in this case did cause the LOC decline. It appears that lenders are starting to use this to identify those who always PIF as less profitable transactors!  The CSR said that only 1 card has ever even reported a balance over 5k, and that many of them had never reported a balance at all even though many of them have over 10k credit limits. This is the case with almost all my cards because I PIF before the statements cut. It may lead to very high credit limits, but if almost all your cards show highest credit balance ever as 0, it can lead to declines. Might be time to start allowing alternate cards to report by waiting until after the statement cuts to pay them.

Yes, and is at most banks and credit unions if you have never had an account there. They do so because some idiots open accounts with stolen identities and write bad checks. Also some have a history of writing bad checks with their own identity. It might be a SP at some banks and CU's, but they told me upfront it would be a HP!
